Cavelero Chronicle

October 16, 2022

Cavelero Students and Families,

Can you believe our 1st Six Weeks Grading period is in the books? It seems like just yesterday our 8th graders were first walking through the welcoming doors of Cavelero, and our 9th graders were starting the year as the new upperclassmen at our campus. It is so gratifying to see students walking the halls between classes, smiling to each other, and expressing their individuality. The Colts teachers continue to express to me how uplifting it is to have students in class who want to learn and are ready to challenge themselves. We have our Cavelero Fall Ball on Oct. 21st, where students can show off those dance moves they’ve been practicing all summer. Our athletics, performing arts, and after-school clubs are flush with students seeking to grow in their interests. Cavelero really is an awesome place to work and learn!!! Keep up the great work, Colts families.

Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Responsible

Fentanyl Warning

Dear Lake Stevens School District families,

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), there is an alarming trend of colorful fentanyl available across our state and country. This “rainbow fentanyl” is made to look like candy, and comes in a variety of bright colors, shapes and sizes. The DEA reports that illicit drug manufacturers and dealers are specifically targeting youth through the use of the rainbow colored pills.

While we are unaware of fentanyl use in Lake Stevens School District students, we do know that it is here in our community. We are sharing this important information now, and ahead of the Halloween season, to keep our students safe.

What is fentanyl?

According to the DEA, fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine. It is tasteless and odorless, and too small to see with the naked eye. Fentanyl is extremely addictive and users quickly develop dependency on the drug. Just two milligrams of fentanyl, which is equal to 10-15 grains of table salt, is considered a lethal dose. Without laboratory testing, there is no way to know how much fentanyl is concentrated in a pill or powder.

Fentanyl-laced pills often look identical to pills prescribed by doctors. People selling or sharing the drugs may not even know the pills contain fentanyl. It is a myth that drugs from trusted sources are safe. Pills and powders from any source—besides a licensed medical provider or pharmacy—should be assumed to contain this deadly ingredient, making every dose a risk.

Talk with your child about the dangers of fentanyl
While these conversations can be difficult, informing children and young adults about the drugs, what they look like, and their extreme danger has a critical impact in preventing overdoses. Here are some helpful tips to facilitate these conversations.

If you ever encounter someone who may be experiencing an overdose, call 911 immediately
The most clear sign of an overdose is if someone is unresponsive. Other signs include:

  • Slowed or no breathing

  • Heavy gurgling or snoring sounds

  • Blue or gray skin, lips, or nails

  • Cold or clammy skin

Lake Stevens first responders carry the drug Naloxone, which can save lives. It's important for our youth to know that calls for medical help will not result in legal consequences under Washington State's Good Samaritan Law. If you encounter what you believe to be fentanyl in any form, do not handle it and call 911.

Again, we have no evidence of fentanyl use or possession in our schools. We are simply sharing this information to be proactive, and to keep our students safe.
